Easy Homemade Melt and Pour Pumpkin and Leaf Fall Soap Recipes

Craft your own pumpkin and leaf shaped soaps for fall with these easy melt and pour fall soap recipes! You can keep your fall soaps plain or dress them up with just a touch of bronze mica like I did with some of mine. For these two fall soap recipes you’ll need a Wilton Silicone Mini Leaf and Pumpkin Mold. You’ll also need 2lb. of a melt and pour soap base. I used a natural yogurt melt and pour soap base made with real yogurt for my fall soaps. Finally you’ll need liquid soap colors in red and yellow and fragrance oils of your choice as well as isopropyl  alcohol in spray bottle (optional) and a digital scale. Here are the recipes.

Ingredients:

11 oz. melt and pour soap base
.3 oz. fragrance oil
3 drops red liquid soap color
24 drops yellow liquid soap color

Instructions:

This recipe will yield three pumpkin shaped soaps. Begin by cutting the soap base into chunks. Weigh out the soap using a digital scale then melt in a Pyrex measuring cup in the microwave in 30 second increments until all the soap has melted. Weigh out the fragrance oil and stir into the soap then add the liquid soap color.

(Note: The original Wilton leaf and pumpkin silicone mold I used for this project is not longer available online. However, they do have a great pumpkin silicone mold as well as this fun leaf and acorn silicone mold.)

Mix well and pour the soap into the three pumpkin cavities of your mold. Spritz the top of the poured soap with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol to remove any bubbles. Allow to solidify while you make the fall leaf soaps.

Once all of your soaps have hardened fully, gently turn them out of the mold.

If desired you can dust the tops of your soaps with bronze mica powder using either your finger or a small paint brush once you’ve unmolded them.

Finally wrap your soaps tightly in plastic food service film to keep them from absorbing moisture from the air. Then label if desired and gift to your friends and family! But don’t forget to keep one or two for yourself!
